Equipped with the ambitions of becoming a cartoonist Glenn joined the Kolding Designskole. Little did he know, that the universe had other plans for him. The emerging technology of CD-ROMs propelled Glenn into a successful career path of interactive design and UX, where he has been working with a broad range of users and a broad range of products. A lot has happened since he started as the first interaction designer in Lego history, until the present where he designs med-tech at Radiometer.

Glenn believes the future designer will be a designer. Not a UI, UX, digital or a “whatever”-designer. The silos will disintegrate, to make way for a more holistic perspective and approach to product design.
